Rising awareness regarding the hygiene of infants, increasing aged population and development of technology taking consideration the demand for disposable hygiene and prevalence of urinary incontinence are anticipated to drive the growth of Global Super Absorbent Polymer Market.
Super absorbent polymer is the water absorbing polymer that can absorb large quantity of liquid. This absorption quality depends upon the ionic concentration of aqueous solution. In distilled water, the super absorbent polymer absorbs 300 times its weight. Super absorbent polymers are largely used in sanitary napkins, infant diapers, adult diapers. These polymers are in the form of powder and when it comes in contact with moisture it turns into gel preventing leaking form them. They’re also used in blocking the underground water in communication or power cables including the retaining agent in horticulture and artificial snow making. These polymers are non-toxic, and non-corrosive. Water absorbing polymers, which are named hydrogel when mixed, absorb watery arrangements through hydrogen holding with water particles. A super absorbent polymer’s (SAP) capacity to absorb water relies upon the ionic grouping of the aqueous solution. The SAP's absolute absorbency and expanding limit are constrained by the type and level of cross-linkers utilized to make the gel. Low-thickness cross- linked SAPs for the most part have a higher absorbent limit and swell to a bigger degree. These kinds of SAPs additionally have a softer and stickier gel formation. High cross link thickness polymers display lower absorbent limit and swell, and the gel strength is firmer and can keep up with molecule shape much under modest pressure. In 1920’s the water absorbent material was tissue paper, cotton, sponge which was fiber-based products. According to the Quartz, the first fully disposable diaper pampers was created by the team led by Procter and gamble engineer victor’s mills in 1961.
The Covid-19 emergency has impacted the chemical business supply chain to a significant extent; hence, significantly affecting raw material procurement for the global super absorbent polymer market as well. The demand-supply gap, price instability, interruptions in raw material, and numerous different elements affected the super absorbent polymer market growth. However, the demand and supply of hygiene and clinical items and solutions were boosted, with the increase in the quantity of COVID-19 cases, worldwide. Super absorbent polymers are broadly utilized in the manufacturing of diapers and wipes that have major demand in clinics during the pandemic.
Global super absorbent polymer market is segmented on the basis of application, type, end-user and region & country level. Based on the application, the super absorbent polymer market is classified into agriculture, healthcare, industries, food packaging, thickening agent and others. Based on the type, the super absorbent polymer market is classified into natural, synthetic and others. Based on the end-user, the market is classified into cable industry, manufacturing industry and others.

News: ADM Joined Forces with LG Chem to Develop Sustainable Technology for Superabsorbent Polymers Used in Diapers
On September 25th 2019; Toxophilite Daniels Midland Company declared joint improvement agreement to make biobased acrylic acid, an essential component needed in the manufacture of superabsorbent polymers (SAP) utilized in a range of hygiene items, including diapers. The acrylic acid project is one more exertion from ADM to make new sustainable materials from sustainable assets, and exhibits our solid commitment to help client interest through invention. Organization at present produces around 30 distinct items from a piece of corn, and anxious to explore the potential outcomes gave through biobased acrylic acid. This joint advancement agreement with ADM has empowered LG Chem to additionally extend their business portfolio with eco- friendly items that can accomplish sustainable development.
Rising Awareness Regarding Hygiene of Infants, Rising Aged Population and Development of Technology Taking Consideration the Demand for Disposable Hygiene and Prevalence of Urinary Incontinence are Anticipated to Drive the Market Growth
One of the major factors driving the growth of global super absorbent polymer market is growing awareness toward hygiene of infants. The use of the diapers has increased recently due to the hygiene and it’s the best option for the infants to keep them fit and fine regarding the safety of their health. For instance; according to the quartz, 3,800 diapers are used by the British children in the age of 2 and half. In addition, rising aged population is also supplementing the market growth. This increasing population is mostly in the countries like Japan, China, Italy where most of the adult uses the diaper due to the urinary continence. Diapers are also used for the old person who is experiencing the uncontrolled urination due to geriatric health problems. For example; according to the Urology care foundation, 33% of adults have bladder issues in which 80% of them are women. Increasing technological developments in this field are also fostering the market growth. Also, the super absorbent technology is mostly used in agriculture and disposable hygiene industry. For example; according to the tech2, IIT Madras has recently developed a biodegradable superabsorbent polymer using chitoson, urea, and citrus acid. This absorbent has a capacity to absorb 1250 grams of water from each gram of polymer.
However, lack of demand in the sales of diaper due to the low fertility rate and decline in birth growth may hamper the growth of global super absorbent polymer market. In spite of that, increasing demand in disposable diapers and hygiene products will create various opportunities for the further growth of the global super absorbent polymer market.
North America is Expected to Dominate the Global Super Absorbent Polymer Market
North America is expected to dominate the global super absorbent polymer market due to the increasing production in the bio-degradable polymers, rising standard of living and the increasing agriculture industries in this region. For instance; Huggies launched bio-degradable baby wipes as a plastic free goal. This product is 100% pure made from natural fibers which will in turn reduce the use of plastic including the removal of 359 tons of plastic. Agriculture industry is the major industry in U.S. Aquapod grade super absorbent polymer is co polymer of potassium acrylate and acrylamide which is also known as the soil retention, which is specially designed to use in agriculture or plant related parts. They are used in retention and absorption of water in underground. This will lead to the soil quality, no drought areas, and water preserving ability.
Asia Pacific is the largest and fastest growing region in the global super absorbent polymer market due to the increasing population, with less cost material and low-cost labor in this region. The increasing geriatric population leads to growth of this market in this region. For instance; according to the economic times, 26 billion babies are born in India in each year considering the population growth but only 13 billion of them uses diapers. In terms of raw material, the manufacturers are mainly focused into absorption of liquid, capacity of absorption, and softness. This will also give the manufacturers to give the best solution in cost efficient with maintaining their high standard performance. This will boost the market in forecast as well. Polypropylene nonwoven is the main synthetic fiber used as raw material in disposable diaper.
